It's widely known and (at least to some extent) confirmed that Mt. Weather is part of the COG (continuity of government) initiative. In the event of
a major national emergency, Mt. Weather will be used as a secure location from which portions of the government can operate.
There's really not much in the way of conspiracy or intrigue about the place. We know it's there and what it's there for. The conspiracy part has
more to do with what they might have there in addition to what's necessary for the COG initiative. If that means that the place also acts as a
repository for all the data that the government has collected in the part, then that makes sense. After all, suppose there is a big disaster (nuclear
war, for example). Wouldn't you expect that they will have kept a backup of tax, banking, social security, medical, and other records on as many
people as possible? Does continuity of government implicitly require the continuity of the society which they govern? Knowing who those people are
and resurrecting the details of their lives after a disaster would seem to be a legitimate part of their function.
